Tommy Guitar by OrianaBorealis Tommy Guitar by OrianaBorealis
This is the first guitar I've ever painted, as well as the first time I've ever worked with acrylics, actually. Clearly, it's the design from the Tommy album cover; it took me about three weeks from start to finish, mostly because I had work and other interruptions that disallowed me to sit down and get a lot done at once.

The finish is not quite as shiny as I would have liked, but by time I had gotten to this point, I hadn't been able to play guitar for three weeks and I was going a bit mad because of that, so I put the strings back on. I'm thinking that the next time I need to change the strings, I'll do another few coats of finish.

Acrylic paints and acrylic clear coat.
The original Tommy album artwork is by Mike McInnerney.

I want to paint my guitar, but a friend of mine advised against it. Does paint affect the sound in any way?

If I ever learn to play the guitar, I hope you provide me with the paint jobs on the guitars.
